what you'll need

  • 2 tubes crescent rolls
  • 2 8 oz packages cream cheese room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest finely grated
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar

let's do it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with non-stick spray. Unroll one package of crescent rolls and line the bottom of the dish. Press the seams together and bake 15 minutes until lightly golden brown.
  • Place the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat until no lumps remain, scraping down the sides of the bowl as often as necessary. Add eggs, vanilla, salt and lemon zest and mix until just combined.
  • Remove bottom crust from oven and spread filling over in an even layer. Unroll the remaining crescent roll dough and lay it gently over the filling and press seams together.
  • Bake 30 minutes or until evenly golden brown on top and filling is set. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Sprinkle top with powdered sugar, cut and serve.
